The Paradox

October Roses 035


“Such is the paradox

of A. A. regeneration;

strength arising out of

complete defeat

and weakness,

the loss of one’s old life

as a condition for finding

a new one.”


A.A. Comes Of Age p 46



People, places and things.

A new way of living, a new reason for living.

Have no fear, don’t fight it, don’t struggle,

accept the change, go with the flow,

go to a meeting and see all of the happy faces,

and know that you too can be one of them.

Recovery, recovering, recovered are three

new words that every alcoholic wishes to learn,

so learn to listen and listen to learn.

Today, become the paradox, accept the change.

Recovery is one day at a time.

Sobriety is a blessing from our Higher Power.


ME and the Boss


And, if no one has told you yet today,

God loves you and so do we.
